I want you to think of Christmastime.
I know, I know – it’s the dead heat of summer. But bear with me. I promise there’s a point here.
When I think of the holidays, a lot of images come to mind…
Mariah Carey on the radio, my wife’s signature stuffing roasting in the oven, the crisp smell of a Douglas Fir…
Oh, and shopping – lots of it.
Last year, 151 million people shopped during the period from Black Friday to Cyber Monday. Many Americans even rely on this time for their entire lot of holiday gifts and supplies.
Now, what does this have to do with the present?
Well, there’s a new day of deals on the horizon, and they are just as irresistible as Black Friday’s.
And it’s all happening next month.
“Summer’s Black Friday” is completely changing the seasonal retail game, just like Black Friday transformed holiday shopping.
And get ready – because this day of deals could drop a triple-digit gain in your wallet by next quarter…

The other day, I was talking to a student of mine about her stock portfolio. And let me tell you – it was looking pretty good.
I mean, why wouldn’t it? All three indices are approaching record highs. We’re in the middle of the biggest and longest bull market in history at 10 years, and my student is among many others who have been enjoying the healthy ride.
But here’s the thing – historically, bull markets only last about five years. So we’re overdue for a major correction…
It’s time to prepare for the impending bear market. Because it could be even worse than the economic disasters that we saw in 2000 and 2008…
And there’s only one way to make sure your portfolio won’t fall victim…

The past few weeks have seen some bullish market gains – and it seems that June is shaping up to be the month that erases the woes of May.
That doesn’t mean we’re clear of all volatility, though – there’s still ongoing tensions between the U.S. and China (as well as Iran) that could potentially shake up the markets.
And after a 10-year historic bull market, the fact is, we’re still overdue for a correction.
But that doesn’t mean you have to fall victim to an uncertain market…
Here’s how to can cash in no matter what happens next…
At some point in your life (maybe even recently), you’ve likely heard the saying, “trust your gut – it’s always right.”
While that may be true for some things, like your health, it’s the last piece of advice you want to follow when it comes to trading.
In fact, trading by your gut is really no different than trading by emotion – which is the single fastest way to lose your money.
“Attention Kmart shoppers! Women’s blouses are 50% off for the next 15 minutes. Look for the flashing blue light!”
You might remember these famous words from Kmart’s Blue Light Special.
Part of the American lexicon in the ’70s and ’80s, the Blue Light Special was an effective sales tool for Kmart.
It worked like this…
At times throughout the day, Kmart would announce a huge discount on a product only valid for 15 minutes. A flashing blue light above the product attracted a crowd.
This kind of noise drew a crowd and for good reason… opportunity!
And the same thing happens every single day in the markets…
You just need to know when to listen…
After a volatile May, where we saw 600 point swings in one day – you’ve seen the triumphant return of the bulls to the market over the past couple weeks.
But even with this bull rally, there’s risk around every corner.
In fact, if you don’t play your cards right, you could find wallet in a world of hurt.
And that’s why today, I want to talk to you about cashing in on one of the market’s biggest bulls without going broke in the process.
Here’s what I mean…
Must See: Potentially the biggest cannabis IPO in history could happen in the next 24 hours. Full story here.
10 years ago, only about 1% of the U.S. population refrained from eating animal products. Now, that number is closer to 5%.
Now, why am I talking about this today?
Look, you may not be part of that 5% – and I’m not here to say you should be. But you can’t deny that vegetarianism is growing at a rapid pace. These days, healthy and sustainable living is attractive to consumers – and plant-based protein embeds that lifestyle into your diet.
And the meatless market is still rising. Some analysts have even predicted the market’s worth hitting $100 billion in the next 15 years.
Meat-alternative producers are seeing high demand right now, and companies’ share prices have been skyrocketing. So far, investors have had the opportunity to make tons of money off of the meatless market.
But not everyone is jumping on the bandwagon…
One analyst’s prediction could completely reverse this “Plant-Based Revolution,” erasing investors’ quick-cash and emptying their wallets in the process. But that doesn’t have to be you…
You can bank big money on the plant-based industry – even if you’re a carnivore at heart.
Here’s the best way to cash in now…
Warren Buffett is considered one of the most successful investors in the world. And really, I don’t blame those who cling to his every last word when it comes to trading advice.
I may not agree with Warren on everything, but it’s easy to see how he reached his status as the third wealthiest man in the world. He’s quoted as saying:
“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”
When you think about it, it makes sense – fear and greed are the two most dominant emotions that drive the market.
When making money, people are greedy. When losing money, people are fearful.
It’s natural – but allowing fear and greed to drive trading decisions can be the kiss of death.
There is a way, however, to turn typical fear and greed into huge profits.
And with this strategy, you could become the “next” Warren Buffett…
There’s no doubt that we were facing more uncertainty as we headed into June.
After all, it was only last month when the talking heads on the financial news networks were going on and on about China, Iran, and political risks out of Washington that were all dragging the market down quite a bit.
But now, a lot of investors are surprised. After the most volatile month of the year, all three major indices have opened and closed higher every day so far in the month of June. So it seems like the bulls are returning…
Except for one major stock.
Now, this is one of the most popular stocks out there – but the bulls are refusing to touch it.
Back when I was growing up, if you ran out of paper towels, or trash bags, or laundry detergent, there was only one way to go get more…
You had to haul yourself out of bed, drive to the store, wait in line, and buy it.
But nowadays, everything is right there at the click of your finger. Online shopping has become inherent in our daily lives – and it has put old favorites like Borders, Toys R Us, and Sears out of business.
The main culprit? Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN).
Competition is already fierce within the retail sector, and on Monday, June 3, AMZN made its latest advancement – one that could seal the fate of yet another retail giant.
On top of that, if the retail sector drops, it could pull the rest of the market down with it.
And as it tumbles, it could take every last penny out of your pocket…
